Dirty Attics & Underwear

How bad do you REALLY want it.

I want it. I want to get to a really big playing field. Where do YOU want to go? Be? Aspire to become? Do you talk about it? Or do you get up off you’re a$$ and do something about it? Because baby, that’s the only way it’s going to happen. You're wearing your own Ruby Slippers!

This world is diluted. It’s over saturated with people who do EVERYTHING and do it well. Better than you & me for that matter. You have to HUSTLE. It’s a dying art. But my ex military father instilled a work ethic in me like none I’ve ever seen. And I hated it when I was a kid, but now, what a blessing.

“Pick that up,” he’d bellow at a store. “It’s not mine,” I’d say. My dad would tell me it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t belong there, so pick it up and put it away… And all these years later, I’ve been picking things up EVERYWHERE! Lol. Even when it wasn't my responsibility...
And Have you seen my arms lately? Ha ha. :-)

I front a band, (
When I’m not fronting The Goldy lockS Band, I have a photography studio, where I shoot the most incredible people on the planet. (
When I’m not shooting, I have an accessory line, that I make much of myself. (
I also do motivational speaking to kids, adults and people in chemical dependency centers.  (
I want to become the world’s Blue Collar Rachael Ray or Rock’N Roll Martha Stewart!

In my now “Spare” time, I shoot my own show, Goldy Knows. ( You need to check it out. It’s a lot of fun, and it actually helps people. And all this crazy stuff I do? I’m going to keep doing it on a bigger & bigger scale and be able to REALLY help people out who need it.

All my strength, power, it comes first & foremost from God, then my badass family and then YOU. All of you, the millions of people combined on my social media sites power me and breathe strength that burns through my veins. All the emails, posts, replies, LIKES, SHARES… everything. You all are amazing. And when people ask where I get my energy from, it’s truly YOU.

What’s the point of this blog? To put you all over! (Wrestling Term) It means compliment. 
But it’s mostly to say, whatever you dream of, desire, work for it. 
Don’t expect it to be handed to you. Cause it’s not gonna happen. And if it is? It doesn’t mean jack sh!t. So come by it honestly.

I was at my agency today. A very pristine establishment that houses the stars you all have come to know & love, go see in concert, but records… One of the workers there needed some help. It’s grunt work. But I always say, “Give it to me!” If I’m off & not doing any of the above, honey, I’ll do it!

Today I had a meeting for Goldy Knows IV. Wasn’t expecting to do any of my “other” work. But? An opportunity presented itself. So I found a pair of flats & a tank top and worked in a pretty hot office attic where I’ve filed and moved hundreds of boxes. I finally decided, well, if I have to do this in my damn underwear... so be it! Hope no one comes up here! And all I can say is dear God, thanks for the opportunity! Undies and all! baha!

Look at EVERYTHING that comes your way as that! An opportunity! 
Carpe Diem! 
Seize The Day!

This blog is dedicated to 2 amazingly strong women who continue to help me in ways no one will ever know. #HannahGarber & AO, I recognize you both & love you.
